Short-term rental properties are the new craze nowadays. Who would want to spend their holiday, staying in a lavish hotel when they can have the privacy of a home all to themselves? Right? This is, in fact, a win-win solution for both the parties involved. Travelers get to enjoy a homely, quiet ambiance while interacting directly with the locals of the area they have come to explore, and that too at a much lower price than hotels. On the other hand, homeowners don’t have to deal with the long-term complications of tenants.
Yes, short-term rental properties offer a novel option for travelers to stay when they are on a vacation or a travel trip. However, for owners, there are certain norms to be followed in order to get the job done correctly. They need to know about techniques that can give their house a hotel-like makeover and make it efficient so that the cash flow starts coming in. And HGTV’s ‘My House is Your House’ is an endeavor from the channel to help out owners in this aspect. It helps them transform their regular homes into profitable short-term rentals. The reality TV show first premiered on the network on June 1, 2019.
My House Is Your House Cast: Who is in it?
‘My House Is Your House’ features mother-daughter duo Victoria and Teryn, who possess all the know-how about the short-term rental market, as hosts. It also stars husband-wife team Ryan and Claire, home-improvement experts, who are experienced in all the latest renovation trends and design ideas that can give that much-required makeover to properties, making them suitable to be rented out for a few days.
My House Is Your House Plot: What is it about?
‘My House Is Your House’ is the perfect series for people who wish to remodel their homes into short-term rental properties that can in the long run generate a lot of money. The show explores this category of housing markets in two of the country’s hottest, most profitable spots, namely Nashville and San Diego. As we already mentioned, there are two teams of experts, Victoria and Teryn from Nashville and Ryan and Claire from San Diego. They apply their expertise in helping clients transform unused parts of their houses or dull rental spaces into spectacular rental properties. Some of the ideas used here are smart renovations techniques and innovative, multifunctional design tips. The final creations not only multiply nightly rates but also increase home value and lead to stellar online reviews, thereby giving owners the opportunity to earn an income they deserve.
The featured experts understand that a successful design plan is the one which is convenient both for homeowners as well as renters. For example, in Nashville, Victoria and Teryn attempt to entice clients to check out rentals by offering a wonderful curb appeal, aesthetic layouts, and convertible furniture which can accommodate additional visitors. As per Teryn on HGTV, “We’ve created hundreds of successful rental properties, so we know what people are looking for when they’re checking out the options online.” Meanwhile, in San Diego, Ryan and Claire’s primary goal is to highlight unique design elements. They also try to create multi-purpose outdoor spaces which can showcase the locale’s breathtaking views and capitalize on the region’s mesmerizing weather. According to Ryan, “Getting those 5-star reviews comes down to adding unique features that highlight what makes our town special.”
One of the couples featured on the show is not able to run a successful business by using their home as a short-term rental. This is because of their dull, inefficient layout and the availability of only a single bathroom. Teryn and Victoria guide the pair on how to give their bungalow a stylish renovation. They also educate the couple with valuable space-saving tips so that the latter can increase their per-day rates. On the other hand, another couple wants to earn more per night by renting out an outdated apartment, located above their garage in the backyard. Ryan and Claire step in and help them realize the potential of their outdoor space and utilize the space to its full capacity so as to attract clients.
